takes can be seen almost as provocation. do you think that will add to what we are seeing, called scenes? could that rally situation? called scenes and a massive demonstration in favor of unity. hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets. the key thing is the report is unconfirmed. the question is what kind of charges. some charges can carry 15 years, but rebellion would cover 30 years. we will see if it is confirmed over the course of the day and if we get that arrest warrant. mariathank you very much, tadeo in barcelona.
politics part of the story here. how much can you put politics aside, david? david: at the moment it is isolated. it's important to distinguish between the equity market in the bond market. you don't even have to forecast the equity market. this is an issue where spain will lose some momentum. for the banks, they are dependent on ecb financing. that's an issue for them. when you think about the bond market, the ecb is at the back of the system. there's a lot more momentum behind the recovery story. spain reinvestment's role off the balance sheet. the ecb announced last week it is going to be buying over 30 billion euros of spanish bonds. .ut they are going to reinvest
in the case of spain, that could be a meaningful number. there's a lot of flow in that market. you may have a scenario where its elite rates through spain next year. that's possible. italyould be dependent on going to the upside or spain disappointing. belowhas been yielding and the economy goes slow rapidly, and italy surprises on the upside, they might trade through spain. market is an issue, the equity market is a big problem. look at it, this is the dominant thing. .his is european growth it far exceeds the u.s. in projection.
low interest rates well past the horizon. the reinvestment story, you've got quantitive easing with an open end. but also a promise that it's going to be low for a long. of time. mario draghi is leaving the ecb in 20,019. 2019. manus: do you think he wants to get to zero before he goes? david: yes. if he does, job done. they can go to alyssa cycle are perhaps now in a position they are coming through with a passive investment policy. weeks,y, in the next few we are going to have to hold portuguese paper.
there athanging out that issue. the ecb does have the back of the system at the moment. i think that's important. how much did this come back to the amount of money that german corporate subsisting on and not investing? how much is that part of the story? the situation for the ecb is it doesn't really know at one point germany will fire up. germany is running this monumental surplus. again ands got bigger that should really be happening. companies invest. in germany their running about
to have percentage points of their gdp. at some point, germans companies hopefully see a reason to invest. the eurozone could be growing at almost was 3% year-over-year. strange but true. if germany steps up to the plate , we could be looking at that sort of picture. manus: they said that germany has saved approximately 109 inos -- 109 billion euros trading on debt by 2020. this possibility of an accelerator. sustainedst of europe in a go to normalization? how much of a break would go on the rest of the european success story? some countries would have an issue. italy is suddenly gaining at
2%, then the markets won't worry concern aboutl of government. especially if the ecb is talking about reinvesting portfolios. this potential health of a tight market as well. anna: thank you ray much, david owens. traveling to work, there is bloomberg radio. you will find it on your mobile device or digital radio in london. our expert on macroeconomics is about to join the team. manus: coming up on the show, one and done? the bank of england is set to raise rates this month but could be the only hike until after brexit? u.s. the president of the becomes keyboard warrior. who will be charged in the

earnings will be much much more dire. why are we seeing this wave of corporate scandals now coming from japan? manus: it's very -- k azunori: it's hard to draw one conclusion. the shortage of labor workers and factories, rising , and in the same time simple awareness of what the workers were doing. they were not aware that what they were doing was not right. this time it is hard to draw any sort of a conclusion, unfortunately. usus: thank you for joining on the very latest with kobe still that steel. let's talk about the bank of england.

opponents of a witchhunt. gathering in barcelona yesterday as impetus lawmakers reject madrid's proclamation of control. the prime minister has dissolved the parliament, put the administration and the hands of his deputy, and called elections december 21. the next test comes when the government workers decide whether to strike in favor of independence. the prime minister has said sexual-harassment cannot be tolerated any longer to theresa may has supposed -- proposed a set of laws and and ordered an amid allegations of inappropriate behavior.

what we going to be looking like when it comes to friday? mark cudmore joins us now. all -- as youn -- look at the week ahead what is your best guess as to where treasury yields are going? >> the risks are skewed to be quite lower in one week's time. there is a lot of risks both way. each one is setup to be more likely to shift yields lower. most importantly is the fed nominee. there is a rate premium priced in the curb -- curve. it is erroneous to do so because even if taylor is picked, he will be more hawkish but that means more hikes and the curb may get pleasure. there's an argument to say even if he is the pick, the 10 year yield might even fall further than if it were yellen or powell. premium, howrate
old also cause the 10 year yield yieldp you the 10 year might drop regardless. there is an 85% chance of a hike in december. they would not want to guarantee that which means if there is a surprise that can only really surprised devilishly. late -- dovish late -- dovishly. manus: how does politics and the data interact? -- you canlitics and also put it in the economic said as well. how does the russia probe and fed story interact? >> therezie at the thing. there are also possibly the
treasury getting high yields coming low at the end of the week. that would mean a bit of a safe haven play them are coming out of equities and moving in treasuries. side, withlitics trump in asia as well, we see a chance for him to tweet headlines about unfair trade. these are skewed. that is the more likely way we are going to get this in. the final component is tax reform. that is the one reason the move up seems justified. , it can is a tax deal change the whole outlook on inflation going forward. there is an early stage, it does not mean it will get past, if we have a house bill this week tomorrow it will be looking to see how viable is this plan? with optimism quite high, skewed
to have a negative risk, that is the one case which could go fully either way depending on what is revealed. manus: washington post talking about how the house bills are not happy to the politics apparently -- happy -- the politics hazy. what about the data? it is not amazing but a fairly decent clip friday. pce coming through. the payrolls friday may come back. can the data provide a reason for the yield higher? >> data is always important. but it is important that data is part of a trend. it is rare traders get too carried away. a very strong labor market. we have not seen sustained inflation. there have to be real shock this week.
willxpectation is the pce commit. it will have to be one point percent to get people excited for more than 24 hours 48 hours. the news scroll be more important than the economics this week. i have a bid on spanish government this morning. i have dispensed equity market by 1.6%. traders seem to be signaling the all clear. is that the right reaction? >> i still remain worried but i think what we have got his past the most -- i don't think that will happen for a long time. there's likely to be protest going forward. we may have gotten past the worst chance of the catastrophic event and that is really
important. i think this continues to erode growth in spain. it is eroding the spanish trade and spanish growth. does factor into projections for next year and will probably continue to be the case the next couple of months. guy: this is the question i keep acting. is the ecb locked in the monetary policy story for the next few months? we are kind of done for you the data does not matter, politics doesn't matter, the ecb is what matters at it has made its intentions very very clear. >> is very clear. -- that is very clear. both banks have made clear what they want do and are ignoring the data. the fed is determined to normalize. ecb has said he don't care what the data is, we are very set to keep on supporting's economy. that is why the euro-dollar will remain under pressure. the data has less importance in
the immediate term. it will need to be a change in trend to get traders excited. guy: as well as your colleagues this morning. story comethe s&p through friday. was the selloff in china just a blip? not been a good enough explanation as to why it is happening. the thing about markets is post .onference, got carried away that is the standard sales expectation. it does what we seem to have had here. overall i'm not too concerned for chinese equities are doing ok. yes bond yields are going higher but that is partially because the chinese government has emphasized they're willing to keep the pressure on growth. guy: thank you for much indeed.
